  • Tensic

    Tensic is a Chilean-born techno producer and DJ based out of the Southern California in the Coachella Valley. If the name sounds familiar, you may have seen his most recent accolade as winner of the DJ Discovery Contest for RE/FORM festival in Los Angeles. Tensic was carefully selected to share the stage with world-class acts 999999999, and Max Gardner, on one of the largest platforms for techno on the west coast.

    Preferring a more hands-on approach, all of his tracks are created with an assortment of hardware consisting of both analog and digital gear. From these tools, electrifying hypnotic synths take flight, and heavy driving kicks hit the floor.

    With a handful of releases so far, Tensic is always working on new music to release, and looks to bring his selection of high energy techno to dance floors all over.





  • Adrian Reyes

    Adrian Reyes is a San Diego based techno DJ who draws from a variety of old school influences to create a raw, tribal, and driving sound. With an endless array of quick cuts and aggressive EQ'ing, he masterfully utilizes 3 decks to maintain a high level of momentum on the dance floor.

    As a resident of San Diego based techno collective, Obsidian, and Los Angeles based collective Groovers Ball, Adrian has started making waves on the west coast, playing shows alongside techno heavyweights such as Truncate, and Hector Oaks. He also produces "Raza on Ecstasy", a series on San Diego based DIY radio station, Particle.FM.




  Roster

  • PHONIX

    PHONIX is a Techno and Drum & Bass DJ based in San Diego, California. His passion for music culminated from a period of listening to various hip-hop, electro, and alternative rock influences.

    His first true techno event was the original COMPOUND in Los Angeles back in 2017. The grunginess of the warehouse and the minimal lighting created an atmosphere unlike anything he had ever experienced. The following years were spent chasing warehouse parties in LA and club nights in San Diego, as well as visiting Detroit and Berlin to experience the pinnacle of techno nightlife first-hand.

    In 2022 he founded AXIOM as a means to push himself creatively and to bring more techno to the local scene. His use of contrast creates a dichotomous style that ranges from deep hypnotic grooves to high-energy dance tracks.



  • Macro

    Having played alongside local dark techno groups such as @nocturnesd and @citadel.events, Marcus Moscoso A.K.A. Macro (born 10-17-96) brings his high octane flavor of techno to the underground as a resident of AXIOM.


    His passion for music culminated through an upbringing of various rock, metal, and electronic influences. Over the years, his sound has developed into a 2-sided story, one delivers fast paced minimal grooves with rolling basslines, while another punches hard kicks and gritty atmosphere. Macro is also known for his production of ArtIntel, a monthly techno show on KCR’s college radio.



  • David L

    David L has frequented the San Diego, LA, & Mojave underground rave scenes for the better part of the last decade. Often compulsively digging through various shades of techno, electro, and left-field breaks, he is also a lover and collector of 140 dub, hiphop and funk. His prowess creates a signature sonic environment of soulful psychedelia. Crew and label affiliates include @axiom.techno @limitednetwork & @happy.playa
